For starters, you should know that this newly launched bike, the Xtreme 160R 4V sits between its siblings, the Xtreme 160R and the Xtreme 200S. You can check out the full list of Hero bikes on the autoX website.
The indigenous two-wheeler manufacturer gave some major cosmetic revamps to the fourth version (4V) of the Xtreme 160R. Having said that, it looks brawny than before and gives an upmarket presence. Apart from that, it also boasts more features.
In terms of performance, the company claims that the Hero Xtreme 160R 4V is the most powerful 160cc bike in the business. Having said all this, let’s see what new offerings this new bike has to offer.
Hero Xtreme 160R 4V: Specifications
As mentioned earlier, the company claims that this BS6 Phase 2-compliant bike is the most powerful bike in the segment. The domestic company built the Xtreme 160R 4V by using the tubular underbone diamond-type frame, which is known for being robust plus it makes the bike more agile. The Hero company has engineered this bike by paying attention to both efficiency and performance. You can check out the Hero Xtreme 160R 4V review here to get an expert’s opinion on this bike.
Furthermore, this chassis holds a 163.2cc, single-cylinder, air/oil-cooled engine, which is tuned to churn out 16.6 bhp at 8500 rpm and 14.6 Nm of peak torque at 6500 rpm. This engine makes the rear wheel spin of this bike via a standard five-speed manual transmission. As per the company, it is also the first bike in the segment to have an oil-cooling technology.
The Hero Xtreme 160R 4V stores its fuel in its 12-litre fuel tank. That capacity is pretty decent for a 160cc bike and for the one that weighs 5 kg more than the 2V, making it 144 kg.
Further, it has a top speed of 115 km/h. As far as fuel efficiency is concerned, the Hero Xtreme 160R 4V is neither tested by ARAI nor has received any feedback from the owners.

More on specifications, the Hero Xtreme 160R 4V has different suspension setups, depending on the variant. Unlike the top-most variant, the lower variants have a telescopic fork suspension at the front and a seven-step adjustable monoshock suspension at the rear. The rear suspension setup is standard across the variants, though. However, the top-most variant has a different front suspension setup, which is more performance-oriented. It gets a KYB-sourced upside-down forks suspension, which can assure better handling and other riding dynamics. Check out the Xtreme 160R 4V price, especially the top-most variant.
But, it is worth noting that both types of suspension setups will do the job of giving comfort and performance-oriented rideability. With the adjustable rear suspension, the rider can manually adjust the stiffness and softness of the rear suspension, especially according to the road condition. However, these homegrown two-wheelers are engineered by keeping the conditions of Indian roads in mind. So, this bike shouldn’t let you lament the ride quality it has to offer.
Moreover, for added safety, this homegrown 160cc bike has a single-channel ABS, which is standard across the variants. For your reference, a dual-channel ABS can provide more traction and stability, especially around the corners. Aside from that, this bike has a dual-disc brake setup as standard as well. The size of the front disc brake is rated at 276mm, while the size of the rear disc brake is rated at 220mm. Further, the Xtreme 160R 4V runs on standard 17-inch alloy wheels with a standard tyre profile of 100/80 R17 and 130/70 R17 at the front and rear, respectively.
Let’s keep the specifications aside and move on to the features of Hero Xtreme 160R 4V.
